Stephen King and son to headline IFOA

This year’s International Festival of Authors will open with an appearance from one of the world’s most prolific and well-known authors.

Stephen King is scheduled to headline PEN Canada’s annual benefit on Oct. 24 at Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre.

This is the only Canadian appearance for King, who will be in town promoting his new novel, Doctor Sleep, a sequel to The Shining. He will be joined onstage by his son, Owen King, in a discussion about the writing life. Owen’s debut novel, Double Feature, explores the relationship between a young filmmaker and his B-movie actor father. The event will be moderated by mystery writer Louise Penny.

Tickets are $100 with all proceeds going to PEN Canada. Advance tickets will be available to PEN and IFOA patrons at 1 p.m. today through the Harbourfront Centre Box Office. Tickets for the public will be available April 18 at 1 p.m.
